And Then There Were None (1945)

I finally caught up with the 1945 motion picture adaptation of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None since we read the novel for "Literature by Women" back in the fall.  It was an OK movie.  Some of the character names and backgrounds were changed (all sorts of different accents, including an Irish one on the judge) but the main storyline was preserved right up until the doctor died.  Then it went all "Hollywood" and "happy" (or at least as happy as you can get in a murder mystery).  It was worth seeing as a classic film but not a great adaptation.
